Southern Baptists have registered record levels of protest against Dr. Russell Moore and his liberal, progressive leadership of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. According to Southern Baptist Executive Committee Chairman Stephen Rummage in an interview with SBC This Week, SBC Executive Committee staff have received unprecedented complaints about Dr. Moore.
“In fact, our Executive Committee staff tells me they have received more letters, more calls, more emails from people who are going to consider defunding or holding back CP monies….They have received more concerns about this issue and more volume of correspondence than from any other issue in memory,” Rummage told SBC This Week about the record-breaking level of complaints regarding the actions of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission.

The action by Prestonwood and the levels of complaints from other Southern Baptists prompted the SBC Executive Committee to appoint two study committees to examine the CP issue.
